Jasper Speaks:

SUNSHINE DAY! It has been BEA-utiful for the past few days and I am loving it. On Saturday when it snowed --- AGAIN, I was down and blue but in the afternoon the wonderful sound of MELTING was everywhere. The only sound I love more is Kendra's laugh!!! It is supposed to be 60 degrees today. BRING ON SPRING! I am loving it! Snow bad --- Sun good!

Of course the heat is still on maximum in my classroom and so it is 117 degrees in there but I won't complain because Mr. Sun has made a GLORIOUS appearance and I am hap -- hap -- happy!

Kevin Cude is a crack up. Who sleeps too much!

Victor is speaking at Reality Check tonight. The past few times he has spoken something has come up that makes it impossible for me not to be there. So you may not want to count on me for tonight.

I had a WONDERFUL time with my mom and dad yesterday! We talked for a long time and then my mom showed me a diary of her great grandmother who had grown up in Vermont but was living in Chicago in 1875. She traveled back to Vermont to visit family for five months and kept a really interesting diary of her trip. It was way cool to read and great to spend time with the folks. I do so love them!

American Idol was disappointing last night. I thought the contestants were supposed to be able to sing. Maybe I am just confused. They said Simon was being way too harsh but I think he was right on. It was just awful.

I guess it is pretty sad that I even care about American Idol. Tuesday used to be the best night of television all week. Idol, followed by Amazing Race and ending with Law and Order: SVU. Those are probably my three favorite shows on TV. I would network hop and be so happy. I wish they would move Amazing Race back to Tuesdays. It is so frustrating when CBS preempts it for dumb things like Golf. Although I do dig me some House so when it follows Idol I will be happy! I like being happy. Happy is good!

I have been praying that God would improve my attitude. I am trying to really think about the GREAT things he gives me in life; a wonderful wife and family, a job that pays the bills, great friends, a great church and student ministry. He is way too good for me to complain! Be happy!

I know what it is to be in need, and I know what it is to have plenty. I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want. Philippians 4:12
